Bon Voyage Mrs Quilts

Look, there I am, strolling through airport lounges in my kitten heels wearing a smart lady-suit and my hair newly set.  And what's that swinging from my shoulder?  That's my mini-passport-tote. Made by Krista Poppyprint as a gift for me. It's quite the thing isn't it?

Does my bum look big in this?

Time to pull out my boarding pass captain? Let me flip over my mini-passport-tote and slide it out of the back pocket. Have a nice flight, Mrs (reads boarding pass) Lily Quilts. Thank you I will Captain.

Now seated in 4B and reading my "Woman's Weekly" magazine, I slip my hand into my mini-passport-tote for a pen for the crossword and gasp audibly at the smashing lining hidden within.

Thank you Krista and "bon voyage" as they say in certain parts of Canada.

  2. I bet once he got a load of that cool tote, she likely got an invite up front for a window seat, don't you think, Angela? Or maybe a first class pod. With champagne service.

    This is a hilarious post, Lynne and it makes me happy that you like your (very small) gift so much. I still think I've been hoodwinked to believe that you are capable of sewing redonculously difficult circley blocks but can't manage a zipper. Jeez Nigel.

  4. My goodness Easyjet has changed since I last flew! You'll be looking so snazzy with your super bag, all the other passengers will be hiding their Morrison's plastic bags in shame :)
